The watch whlch he threw back was rondered somewhat the worsd for wear by rolllng about ln the dirt." A iiai) smash-up bappened nearly in front of ourofllce last week Wednesday evenlng. One C.

The front part of each buggy was badly smashed. Mlts Klmltall escapcd wlth a few scratches, but Mlsa Phlnney was consider- ably brulaed, so tbat she has elnce been confined to the house. No permanent Injury ls antlci- pated, however. Thk burglar confined ln our jall awaiting trlal for breaklng Into the hou.se of George O.

Between the two doors Is a space wlde enough, he supiofed, for hlm to stand, though It Is doubt ful. He bad made a saw of a common table knlfe and went to work to saw off the Iron at the topof the door, IIIs plan was to let hlmselt down between the doors and walt tlll the outcr door was opened when he would M make way for Uberty, Sherlff uudley went to the door and found he had completed hls work, but no attempt was made to escape. lle probably supponed one of the women would come to the door, though he says he thought It would not be a good tlme be- cause there would be so many people on the street.

About the tlme of hls death most of hls chlldron left Vermont and through lnadvertence nothlng was ever done to erect a sultable stone to hla memory. But now after the lapse of half a century a sult able monument, modest In expense and deslgn, but every way npproprlate and subtttantlal, has been set up to show where the cltiien once so honored lles. The expense of the work ls under- stood to have been borne mostly by the grand. chlldren of the deceased, among whom aie Ilon, Charles Follett, IIoo. Martln D. Follett and Ilon. John F.

IIIs eldest daughter and youngestson arrlved on the evenlng of the day after the f uneral, not havlng heard of hls death, though they had been informed of hls Illness.

Watkimiuiiv, That "whallnsexpcdltlon" was an announcement of falth and notof knowledge, It was a sortof forlorn hope devlsed to ralso the long embargo on light In thls vlllage. Plckett had demonstrated hls fltness to lead a forlorn hope. A green1acker, he had learned fortitude when hope was exceedingly forlorn ; a skllf ull fbih erman, he knew more ways than one to capture a black bass, and why not a whale? Theexpedl- tlon announced In a splrit of prophcey the prophet was under the lnlluence ot no other splrlt set sall ln quest of oll on Thursday. Sklpper Plckett wlsely handed over the harpoon to the sklllful hands of Mrs. C. X. Arms. A school of whalea was encountered the flrst day out. Her unerrlng harjoon spoared the lot. Friday and Saturday she resolutely held to the work and " struck oll " at every fiight of her harpoon. In other words, through the energetlc solicltatlon ef subscrlptlons by Mrs. Arms, who interested herself in thls mat ter, nearly $80 had been subscrlbed by thecltlzena up to Monday mornlng, whlchtnsures thellghting ot the street lamps for a year. lt ls hoped the sum wlll be lncreased to 5100, whlch wlll admlt of procurlng and llghtlng much needed addltlonal lamps. Mrs. Arms ls falrly entltled to public thanks for her enterprlse and her very successful elTorts The field for enterprlse and "Internal Iraprovements " ls by nomeansexhausted. Those unslghtly fences, bad sldewalks and weedy gutters on Maln street between the "hlll" and the hotel stlll arrest the attentlon of vlsitors, and caubo them to wonder tbat the cltlzens of bo plcturesque a town should be so heedlesa of Its appearance. The owners of the vacant lotB between the Car- Inter place and vlllage batl should send to John Sherman and get hls reclpe for demorallzed fences, and no doubt almost any ot thelr thrtfty nelgh bors wlll show them bow to trlm out the grass andweedsand "tldyup" generally, Thls part of the vlllage strangers Invarlably see, and certaln portlons of lt are the worst looklng parts of the town. The uttrw of old carU around that car rlage shop ls not ornamental. Why not plck them up and put them out of slght? It won't cost any thlng, and a decent regard for the good fame of the vlllage and the rlghts and feellngs ot those resldenta who take a coramendable pride ln hav lng thelr premlsea look neat and attractive, Bhould lnlluence all dellnquents to keep thelr property in j respectable order..,,. The condltlon of thecemo-; tery Is the subject ot much sharp crltlclsm, The place seems more llke a rude unkept field than a burlal place for the dead. A decent regard for the memory of loved ones buried there should unlte all cltlzens in a request to tbe authorltles to have the place properly graded and kept with greater care.
